The doctors basically told me nothing physically was was wrong with my daughter but mentally something was wrong my daughter was devastated this issue lasted for at least 5 months she was depressed she felt like no one believed her. Her legs did get their strength back and was doing fine until this year she started high school which was great then in mid October the weakness in her legs returned I wake her for school in the morning and she is so weak she can’t get up for school she is now on home instruction her counselor says that her weakness may be cause by stress is anyone else’s teen going through this?
